75 year old woman presented in May 2008 with painless, jaundice, pruritus, post-prandial epigastric pain and weight loss over the past month. CT scan showed a 4.9 cm mass in the head of the pancreas that did not extend into the adjacent vessels. She was thought to have a resectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma and was brought to the operating room for a Whipple procedure. After opening the abdomen, she was found to have a single, small subcapsular liver lesion. A frozen section was requested to determine whether the surgeons should proceed with the Whipple procedure or place a stent and abort the procedure.
